|My husband and I just brought home a black lab that we adopted from someone on craigslist. They said that they found him a week ago and tried to find the owners, but were unable to... and they couldn't keep him so they were trying to find him a home.
My husband and I went and met him today, and he's such a sweetie. The people said they took him to their vet and had him scanned for a microchip (unfortunatly he didnt have one.) Their vet guessed him at 3-5 years old. I am guessing him a little older, as he is starting to get some grey hairs on his face... Not a lot, but a few.
After we picked him up, we took him to PetsMart and had him weighed at the Banfield clinic. He's about 75 lbs. He did amazingly well for not having known us, and the chaos of PetsMart at Christmas time. We bought him a new collar and a tennis ball, which he has ignored completely.
We're trying to think of a name for him, but nothing seems to fit! He seems to be a VERY gentle guy. So far he is loving laying around the house, and sitting right in front of my husbands face and staring as he plays xbox, trying to get his attention.
As soon as I think of a name for him, I will create a page and add some pics. Any suggestions? We've thought along the lines of Max, Jake, Ben, Duke, Shadow, Riley?
